I love making custom leather bags. Since we didn't have much going on this past weekend and it's still more like winter than spring outside, I took some time and made a bag.
This time it was for me.
It's a light shade of lavender, sort of grayish with a hot pink lining.
Not wanting to put a zipper into the facing, I made a strap that comes over and hooks with a magnet. Extra magnets in the facing keep the bag closed.
No pockets were added but a little leash was stitched into the lining . . .
. . . to hook onto just the right sized custom bag. . .
. . . which holds a few things . . .
. . . including a custom cell phone sleeve.
There was plenty of supervision to make sure seams sewed as planned. . .
. . . but, mostly with eyes wide shut.
And today it's back to the business of quilting.
